We've come a long way from when peepers.com was launched in 1993, and we love to reflect on the successes that acted as stepping stones to our greatest achievements. Several of the original Peepers frames that customers fell in love with in our early days are still available in our Classics Collection and have maintained a dedicated fan base throughout the years. Whether you’re new to Peepers or it’s time to replace an old pair that you loved to death, take a trip down memory lane and consider a few of our classic faves.

Peepers classic reading glasses The Rogue in red and tortoise

The Rogue

We can all be roguish at times! Our tiny, round The Rogue spectacles in sleek black, trendy tortoise, or saucy red fronts with tortoise temples are a step outside the standards box when it comes to readers. The rounded design delivers a unique and unexpected shape that hearkens back to the pince-nez styles of the early 20th century. However, the upward-pointing bridge brings modernity to the forefront, turning a classic on its head. For those who wear their hair short or in updos, the pinhole detailing on temple tips adds extra flair.
